Shelly Palmer Radio Report – January 14, 2014

If you want a new tablet but don’t have the money to spare, Amazon has a plan for you. The company recently announced that if you buy a Kindle Fire HDX, you’ll have nine months to pay it off. Whether you want to get the $229, seven-inch tablet or the $379, 8.9-inch model, you’ll only need to pay a quarter of the cost up front. Your remaining balance is then spread out over three payments, every 90 days. The plan is simple, and Amazon isn’t charging any interest. But if you don’t send Amazon the money you owe, Amazon might brick your device. Amazon says it reserves the right to deregister your device in that case, which would block it from accessing Amazon content. The Kindle Fire HDX is an awesome tablet – it’s built around a great media experience, and is great for tech newbies thanks to its “Mayday” tech support feature. It was already a great tablet to buy, and now Amazon has made that process easier than ever.
